Dragon Age Inquisition to Have Kinect Support, SmartGlass Possible Too

We are already pretty stoked about Dragon Age Inquisition, heck we’d buy it on day one even if we don’t get told much more about it. However, there are more reasons for deciding to purchase the game when it comes out. For instance, Kinect support for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Yes, BioWare has confirmed that the game will ship with support for Kinect commands that would resemble the functionality that was provided to Mass Effect 3.

This is different from what the developer had stated back in 2013; when asked about voice commands support last year, BioWare wasn’t sure if it would be featured in Dragon Age Inquisition or not.

BioWare’s creative director for the game, Mike Laidlaw was talking to Official Xbox Magazine during a preview of the game when he said:

We’re expecting that Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions will ship with a Kinect-enabled voice command feature, just like Mass Effect 3 did.

This means, when Dragon Age Inquisition comes out you will be able to manage inventory and squad tactics with Kinect. You might also be able to voice bits of dialogue.

Talking about SmartGlass features, producer Cameron Lee has an impermanent plan:

It needs to make sense, of course. But we want Inquisition to be an experience you can take with you everywhere – to work, the commute home, the living room, bed.

How excited are you about Dragon Age Inquisition’s Kinect support knowing that Mass Effect didn’t have the more capable Kinect 2.0 at its disposal?
